Finalizing My 2006 Net Worth Goal - $265,000

Earlier this month I tried to determine what a good net worth goal for 2006 would be, although at the time I didn't know exactly what my net worth would be at the end of the year.

I am in the process of crunching the numbers and it looks like I will end up with a net worth around $206,990 for 2005.

Based on this information I will finalize my 2006 net worth goal to $265,000. It is slightly more aggressive than I originally proposed, but I think it will be a good target for the new year.

This is slightly personal...but could you provide a range of your salary? I'm 26 and earn approx $50K, and I have no idea how to turn that into a net worth of $200K in a year! What's the composition of your net worth increase? What percent of it is salary savings and what part of it are due to investment returns?
